This Month's News

Visiting a doctor doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of time in a waiting room with other sick patients! You can use virtual care to get face-to-face medical care from anywhere. Did you know? Around 84% of telehealth users were able to resolve their medical concern(s) during their visit. Skip the line. 

You don't need to go to an urgent care or doctor's office for many non-emergency medical conditions, such as:  

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Back pain (for adults)
  • Headache (for adults)
  • Minor cut, scrape or burn
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Sore throat
  • Strain or sprain
Note: These are examples of conditions and not an all-inclusive list. 
You can also receive prescriptions for some conditions during a virtual visit.

Below are the virtual care resources available under the PEBB-sponsored medical plans. These telehealth options are an important part of the benefits and resources that PEBB provides to support your physical, emotional, and financial well-being.
